“Relaxed bliss, with a license to roam!”
Reviewed 30 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

If you are looking for a quiet corner of France to call your own look no further. We rented the Gite at Borie for a week with two young children (6 and 8) and it proved to be exactly what we wanted. Karen and Andy are perfect hosts, striking the ideal balance between being there when we needed them, but at the same time, creating a sense of privacy and that we had the whole 50 acres of beautiful wooded countryside to ourselves to roam around in. The photos don't really do it justice; the gite is well equipped; lovely outdoor bbq area, and our kids were never out of the large pool (or enjoying the odd special treat our hosts surprised us with!). For us, it was delightful to allow them to roam Swallows and Amazons style in a way we can’t do at home.

As a quick practical guide to this area of the Lot valley, we were pleasantly surprised about how relaxed the whole region was, certainly a quieter alternative to the Dordogne, but there is still lots to see and do, however you do certainly need a car to explore the lovely little villages, restaurants, vineyards and Chateaux in the area. And the nearest town of Fumel (10 minute drive), which can’t compete with the Bastide towns for beauty and therefore doesn’t make it into the guidebooks , is extremely friendly has all the shopping practicalities that you could possibly want.
A perfect holiday.
